Titan Arum

Titan arums are true giants amongst flowering plants: the circumference of their huge flowers can be over three metres and they stand three metres high and the single leaf grows to the size of a small tree. Their smell, likened to rotting meat, is so bad it led to the common name ‘corpse flower’.


Both the ‘fragance’ and the flower’s meat-colouration attract pollinators – carrion flies and beetles.
